Cultists Rage After Twitter Bans Trump’s Meme Maker

Variety reports:

The primary account of Carpe Donktum, a prominent pro-Donald Trump meme maker, has been permanently suspended by Twitter, which cited “repeated” violations of copyright infringement. Twitter’s move to kick Carpe Donktum off the platform came just days after a video from the account — tweeted by Trump — was pulled after a copyright complaint from the original video’s owner.

Twitter previously had removed several Carpe Donktum videos after receiving DMCA takedown notices for copyright infringement, including one shared by Trump in February 2019 lampooning congressional Democrats during the president’s State of the Union speech that included R.E.M.’s “Everybody Hurts.” Carpe Donktum, whose real name is Logan Cook [photo], immediately created a new Twitter account (@CarpeDonkutm) and complained about Twitter’s “censorship.”

@CarpeDonkutm has also been banned. As you can see, this latest banning is prompting Trump’s ballwashers to vow that they are leaving for the far-right platform, Parler, which is slightly less Nazi-infested than Gab.
